I went to the gym today. Got a good lift in, then soaked in the hot tub for a while before going on about my day.

I see what you did there.

TOTALLY OT, but did you soak those friction plates in oil prior to install ?

Yes, I did. I was taking pretty pictures for a writeup I'm going to do for the wrr website, so I put them in there dry just for that one photo.

The brakes only squeaked on the sections following a mud hole, which there were plenty of. It was messy

They're all up in arms about it on the big WRR thread. Ugh. The lengths I go through for these people. I'm going to have to edit the writeup I did when I get home tonight and include the wet pictures.

I assumed that was a photo mock-up... but I hate to see anyone smoke a new clutch.

EDIT: How do my new meds appear to be working ?

Ive got more of the rounded oval head shape,the ARAI's are more for the squared off funnel shape evidently.

+Ive seen people lose their minds changing shields on ARAI's and I dont have a minder like Navin does for such trivialities.


(Damn Marquez and Rossi put on one hell of a duel in Quatar yesterday.

In CA proper we have meds right in the water,so I cant tell much difference on your meds one way or the other,best of luck though and be careful with the green ones.

EDIT: You do seem a "little" more Morose/passive aggressive,but then its a Monday.

Morose is fine, being perceived as "passive aggressive" is a downer. I like to think of myself as, "face value." I don't care for people much and need them to understand it fully, not go through the interpretive process. It saves time this way.

People only truly know what I think of them when I take them trailriding,if any sort of whining or excess bleeding occurs,and they cant deal with it than that's as far as the friendship goes.

Harsh but fair.

Those who excel are shown worse and worse trails (funner) until they end up wadded in a ditch begging to know the "easy" way out.

Usually isnt one is the truly sad thing,shakes out the Riff Raff.

Um, this is the Internet. You don't exactly have a face here. Well, besides the Tom Hanks thing that is.
